Stressed?

Don’t know what’s wrong with me. Been 3 days that I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and can’t sleep well.

Too many things I’m worried about because I find myself waking up with a heavy heart, thinking either about things I have to do, things that are not solved yet, things that are pending.

I need to learn how to relax and manage stress even if it gets too overwhelming.

It’s 4am and I’m crying for no reason. I don’t mind if it helps to release some tension.

Air Tickets

I’ve spent most of my money on flight tickets within these days. It’s not even funny.

First, there’s this KL-Seoul return ticket that I’ve bought for next year.

Then, there’s this KL-KK return ticket for 2.

Followed by, KL-Singapore return ticket.

The best part is….after buying the KL-Singapore ticket, I just realised my visit coincides with Singapore F1 Grand Prix..which means hotel rates are ridiculous. Don’t know whether to laugh or cry but I have to be there anyway F1 or not so I’m finding ways to justify my spending.

The only way I can  comfort myself is by telling myself, “Money earned is to be spent and money can be earned again.”

맛있어요

Had Korean food just now with a friend. She had bought a meal voucher which is a good deal for 2.

I had fried fish and steamed egg at a Korean restaurant for the first time today. Was full to the brim as always after a Korean meal.

When we were leaving, the restaurant owner asked us, “How is the food?”

My friend, who happens to learn Korean with me, answered, “맛있어요” , which means delicious.

He was very surprised and he answered us in English and then switched back to Korean, “잠깐만요.” (Wait a minute)

He gave us both his name card which says 10% discount on it. So the next time we go there, we get 10% off! WEEEEEE!!! 🙂

Count My Blessings

I was all cool yesterday. Not knowing what else to prepare, I told myself I’m just going to go with the flow and be natural. I’m just going to talk the best I can.

Today when I pushed the button in the lift, my heart started pounding fast. Okay…finally the panic sets in and I was beginning to feel nervous already. And to make things worse, I suddenly have a phlegm stuck in my throat of all time but now.

I think I did well and gave my all.

Good news came later in the day. I can’t help but to smile a little but was controlling not to smile too much.

I’m very thankful for the opportunity today and can’t help but feel a sense of relief after all the hustle and bustle from the past few weeks.

Corn on the Cob

Went for Korean class yesterday after stopping for a week as I was in Melaka. I haven’t been revising for the last 2 weeks because of the unexpected events that turned my usual routine upside down. Feeling a little pressured on Friday prior to class the next day but I got to tell myself language learning can’t be measured in that way.

Had another session of speaking class at night and I enjoyed it. At least, I’m learning to create conversation.

Home alone today. Did some reading. Started another Korean drama – Secret Garden. Watched 4 episodes today and cleaned house in between. Steamed corn with the Buffalo cooker for the first time. Just 2 tablespoon of water, a pinch of salt, put in the 2 corn on the cob, peeled and cleaned of course, set time to 17 minutes. Mum says 15 minutes is enough but I just like the number 7 hence 17.

Finished the 2 corn at one go…and I’m a happy girl.
